Liverpool have allegedly make an offer for Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila.
According to sources in France - as reported by tribalfootball - the Reds have tabled an offer in the region of £9 million for the Frenchman and are now awaiting a response from the Ligue 1 club.
Liverpool are understood to have been monitoring the 20-year-old for some time in their pursuit of of a combative midfielder to add extra steel alongside the likes of Steven Gerrard and Raul Meireles.
The acquisition of Christian Poulsen by the previous Liverpool regime can fairly be deemed a flop and - while Lucas Leiva has enjoyed arguably his best season at Anfield thus far - the Merseyside club are thought to be keen to bring in another tough tackling midfielder.
M'Vila would certainly provide Liverpool with extra midfield protection and - at his young age - would have the potential to develop into an integral member of the Anfield set up.
The France international's style would seemingly be suited to the Barclays Premier League - something he readily admits himself.
"Which league do I watch on TV? The Premier League! It matches my game," he told L'Equipe.
"I'm a big fan of the English state of mind and tackling.
"It is a warrior's game, where you have to show plenty of fighting spirit.
"I like to watch Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea, but also Manchester City."
